STEPHEN DALDRY (Director) made his feature film debut
in 2000 with "Billy Elliot" starring Jamie Bell and Julie Walters.
The film was nominated for three Academy AwardsÂ®, including Best Director,
Best Supporting Actress (Julie Walters) and Best Screenplay (Lee Hall). It
also received 12 BAFTA nominations and won the Alexander Korda Award for Best
British Film, Best Actor (Jamie Bell) and Best Supporting Actress (Julia
Walters) as well as 32 other awards internationally. "The Hours" is
Daldry's second feature film.
Before Daldry turned his hand to feature films, he was
director of the Royal Court Theatre and remains Associate Director. He has directed or produced
more than a hundred new plays, many of which have subsequently been seen all
over the world. His work at the Court includes David Hare's "Via Dolorosa,"
which later transferred to Broadway and London's West End, Ron Hutchinson's
"Rat in the Skull," Caryl Churchill's "This is a Chair,"
"Far Away" and "A Number," Arnold Wesker's "The
Kitchen" and Howard Korder's "Search and Destroy." For the
National Theatre, Daldry directed the multi-award-winning "Machinal"
and "An Inspector Calls." The latter is still running in London's
West End, and also was mounted on Broadway, where both Daldry and the play
received Tony Awards. Daldry has also directed and produced for BBC radio and
television, and his first short film, "Eight" was nominated in 1999
for a BAFTA. Daldry is a Trustee of both the Old Vic and the Young Vic theatres
in London. He is also the Cameron Mackintosh Professor of Contemporary Theatre
at Oxford University.
Currently, Daldry is directing two of Caryl Churchill's plays, "Far Away" at the New York
Theater Workshop and "A Number" at London's Royal Court Theatre.
